Zebra Fich

By MikeRC
Another one from the bird collection at Lotherton.
This one is for Flakeyflower who tells me they are probably male and female Zebra finch.
Don't they look sad? How much happier would they be flying free in the African bush?
Lucky they have each other.

Thanks fo looking...Mike

Hello Mike

I have large aviaries and kept in the right conditions these birds will do very well.
What bird collection did you see these in, was it a public aviary? He is certainly in bad shape, just look at his feet! I don't think he will last the winter :-(

I agree, don't look too healthy, they are lovely birds I have four, one in my profile

they are very lovely birds when they are healthy and they are quite active..these ones look miserable and that branch looks filthy, seems their living conditions as per this photo..are bad and leave much to be desired. as far as the image itself goes you did a good job on it.
